O’s Offer Contract To Hendrickson; Rockies Interested

The Orioles have offered left-hander Mark Hendrickson a minor league contract, reports The Baltimore Sun's Dan Connolly.  Hendrickson, 36, has posted a 4.74 ERA, a 2.19 K/BB ratio and a 10.6 H/9 rate in 105 games (12 of them starts) over the last two seasons in Baltimore.  The Orioles declined Hendrickson's $1.2MM option for 2011, but were still known to be interested in bringing the veteran back at a lower price.

Hendrickson is also being targeted by the Rockies, reports Troy Renck of The Denver Post.  It's no secret Colorado is looking for left-handed bullpen help, specifically a pitcher who is willing to sign a minor league contract.  Tampa Bay and Seattle showed some interest in Hendrickson earlier this offseason, but there has been no news on either of those fronts since the Winter Meetings.
